Shorten your path to a college degree!    Save Time! Save Money!   Earn college credits before you get to college!

The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP) helps you receive college credit for what you already know, for a fraction of the cost of a college course. Developed by the College Board, CLEP is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program, available at more than 2,900 colleges and universities. Pass any of the 33 CLEP exams and achieve your college and career goals. Contact your college’s admissions office or a career/academic adviser and ask the following questions:

Does your college recognize CLEP examinations in the subjects you want?

What score do you need to get credit for the equivalent course?

Does earning that credit allow you to skip one or more introductory courses?
